Other DescriptionWhy Corticool works fast! Unlike traditional hydrocortisone creams and ointments, Corticool is a water-based gel. This unique formula absorbs quickly to start working right away, while other products "float" on the skin's surface taking thirty minutes or longer to stop your itch. Many anti-itch products (creams, ointments and prescriptions) are oil-based, causing the hydrocortisone, to "float" on the skin's surface, slowing down penetration of the active ingredient. Tecnu Corticool is water-based, allowing the hydrocortisone to more easily penetrate through the skin's surface, and give soothing, long-lasting relief. Uses: For the temporary relief of itching associated with minor skin irritations, inflammation and rashes due to: Poison oak/ivy/sumac. Eczema. Insect bites. Soaps. Detergents. Psoriasis. Cosmetics. Jewelry. Seborrheic dermatitis. Other uses of this product should be only under the advice and supervision of a doctor. Cool the Burn, Stop the Itch. Upon applying Corticool, you will notice menthol cooling and soothing your rash. And since the hydrocortisone can easily absorb through your skin's surface, you will experience hours of itch relief.
